Shalyn Getz, Americorps*VISTA Program Development Specialist
, a Joppa, MD native, joined us in June 2011, shortly after graduating from Middlebury College in Middlebury, VT. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Religion with a minor in Sociology. During her year of service, she will be working closely with our staff to improve and expand our volunteer programming.
